How do I install this?

This Minetest modpack adds machinery and automation procedure content to your world. A few notable features:

  • Electric circuits
  • Automated material processing (ores, wood, ...)
  • Extended chest functionalities

For more information, see the Technic User Manual, or the Technic Wiki.



Do you recommend this mod?

  • Awesome Mod

    I love this mod even though it tends to lag many clients.

    One of the best features for me is that this mod allows you to double ore output by grinding the ores and then cooking the ground ore into an ingot. This is extremely beneficial to new players who haven't found many resources.

    There are several forks for this mod. I personally like the ones that support HV machines and chests that have more features.

    I think this mod is a must have on a server that can handle it.

  • Awesome must-have mod, but …

    I love it. Technic is one of the first mods I install whenever I set up a new world and it is also one of my go-to mods when I just want to toy around with things. It is very feature-rich and well integrated with a lot of other mods.

    … but: it entirely lacks of proper documentation.

    The wiki on GitHub has pages that were last touched almost 10 years ago and basically contain nothing more than the name of an item or sometimes only a list of headings. There is also a “manual” wich is an unsearchable giant wall of text without any proper information on crafting, alloying (what materials in what ratio), and other things to produce stuff.

  • Cool but..

    The mod is really nice with too many features, however i could not do any good machine with it because of lag, servers that use it always have high max_lag and.. makes high fps lose to those with not very good performance, really cool it'd be if it makes.. less lag, i'd never recommend a mod that causes lag..

  • A tech masterpiece

    I have been using this mod since 2012; offers a plethora of machines to process materials. For me it is the goto tech mod that can be used alongside mesecons and pipeworks, providing automation with reduced effort from the player. My favorite is the windmill, because I can generate energy using air even though the blades don't move.

    It is a Debian-like mod; slow, visible updates but high stability.

  • Not enough documentation for beginners and most devices have to be made in creative mode only.

    I have tried to get anything working with this mod and being a complete beginner the documentation is severly lacking. I get many things that say this item has no network but there is no way to give it a network as it has no right click options but is wired into every port possible.

    Many of the devices can not be made in regular mode and must be done in creative. For example; you need a grinder (any grinder) to make any kind of metal dust. One of the componets to make a grinder is a Machine Casing which takes 8 cast iron ingots and 1 brass ingot. To make a csat iron ingot takes carbon steel ingot and coal dust. How are you supposed to get the coal dust if you can't make a grinder in the first place. This is something that should be fixed for those of us who don't play in creative mode very often, if at all.

  • The Second Industrial Revolution of Minetest

    With the help of a Wooden Pickaxe, we can go to the Stone Age. With the help of a Stone Pickaxe, we can go to the Bronze Age; or even the Iron Age, if you have the will to skip the annoying bronze alloying. By an Iron Pickaxe, you can mine diamonds and mese.

    Then, how about the Industrial Revolution? That's what the technic mod's doing.

    The technic mod have four stages: Burning fuels, Low Voltage Power, Medium Voltage Power, and High Voltage Power. The first three stages provide tools to smelt materials, cook foods, extract dyes, compress dusts, and to grind stuffs. The High Voltage Power provides advanced power sources and powerful tools, such as quarry (though digtrons is better), force fields, and nuclear reactors. They all provide assistant to survival players to finish their tasks more effectively. In LinuxForks, the technic mod helped me to process tons of minerals from my digtron.

    Very very awesome in general, but lacks good documentation

    This modpack is awesome, because it allows you to take your manual tasks like smelting to a whole other level. Not only it allows you to create actual energy factories like in real life (this mod generally is based off of real life btw) using generators from fuel-fired furnaces, geothermal things to even nuclear reactors, to power awesome machines, such as not only better furnaces, but even cool things like e.g. grinders, which allow you to basically double it and give it to the next person ore lumps by turning them into 2x dust that's smeltable to ingots! You can also connect those using pipeworks to make actual automatic machines that can do whatever you can imagine.

    The long process of going through the materials, machines and generally exploring the mod is also really fun, but not as fun as it could be. Why? Because let me introduce an issue of this mod:

    It lacks good documentation

    The manual doesn't guide you step by step at all, and makes you feel like it just talks about random unordered things. E.g. after introducing metal processing techniques (which really should be after telling you how to even create such machines in the first place), it already jumps into stuff about uranium enrichment, which is basically about the endgame freaking nuclear reactor. It doesn't even have anything about starting to build machines, really. Atleast while the manual is bad, you can still look at guides from other sources, such as games like the mesecons lab, which can show you some example technic builds and how it works. I heard you can also check out servers, because some offer technic tutorials. Really, the documentation still has some decent information about e.g. ores, but can't teach a beginner fluently at all.

    Nether error

    El mod está dando error cuando se agrega el mod Nether, ambos mods son indispensables. por favor arreglen eso en el próximo update.-

  • Automatize it all - great mod!

    This mod adds a new layer of gameplay. After having mined your first ores, you can start building up your machine park. That takes quite some time, experiments and learning. In the end, you can build huge factories that automaticly produce almost anything. But it's a long way to get there.

    For me, the pleasure (as with all building) lies in the path there. A lot of other players also enjoy operating their machines for a long time and engaging in mass trading. Technic was and is a mod loved by many.

    If you like machines and technic, then this mod most likely is for you and deserves at least one world. There are other similar mods which achieve similar things diffrently and which may be worth a look as well (like TechAge, basic_machines etc.). Just give them all their own worlds and enjoy the variety :-)

    If you have trouble getting started, join a server which runs the mod. They usually come with tutorials built for new players.

  • Great mod

    I love this mod but can't figure out what the MV freezer is for but getting ice from water or what the Constructor is for. If you know please advise.

  • An excellent set of simple & expandable features and gameplay

    I would love it if there were machines which can cryogenically treat most metals to massively improve their stats, like which exist in real life to reduce tool and active part wear by ~5x. Default recipes can be added and modified and capability supporting mods can add their own, like cryotreating the center ingot of a steel pickaxe similarly to how a Traditional Katana is laminated.

    See Thoughtco's "An Introduction to Cryogenic Hardening of Metal" at "Besides steel, cryogenic hardening is also used to treat cast iron, copper alloys, aluminum, and magnesium. The process can improve the wear life of these types of metal parts by factors of two to six."

    P.S. If you find that this mod, Pipeworks, Mesecons, Digilines, or others lag your machine and the server by lacking optimization, there are projects to fix some of these mods like technic-plus, even though some of the measures impact gameplay due to the limitations of the LuaJIT addon subsystem.

  • Nice mod

    I like this mod not only due to its usefulness but also tht it is based on real life and found this educative.I am in tenth standard and this mod helped me to understand various concepts in my physics. But the armour shown in the screenshot is not present in my inventory
